The Wisdom of the Elders

A network of Native American storytellers includes a directory of several Oklahomans. "Turtle Island Storytellers Network is the American Indian speaker’s bureau being developed to promote talented American Indian storytellers, tribal historians, and song carriers from the Pacific Northwest and Northern Plains. A total of 80 individual webpage portfolios will be developed during 2005, each including information on talented oral cultural artists, their biographical summary and contact information, along with audio, transcript and a photo gallery.These speakers will be available as speakers and consultants. Promotional announcements will be distributed to public agencies, institutions, organizations and the media in the region of the artists. This project is funded by Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail, National Park Service, and National Endowment for the Arts."
